In the south-eastern corner of Funen a small dam connects the mainland with the scenic island Thurø. The holiday houses on the quiet and cosy island are surrounded by lovely nature. Forests, good beaches, a reef and a natural cove characterize the island. Thurø also offers shops with groceries, restaurants and leisure activities for both adults and children.
On the east coast of Thurø, by the Great Belt, a beautiful recreational area 'Smørmosen' with a lovely sandy bathing beach, fresh and clean water, a 40 metres long bathing jetty with a water slide as well as a playground are at your disposal. The beach has the Blue Flag.

During the summer you can observe a rich bird life here.
